Hi, I'm sorry to bug the OpenSolaris for a question that pertains to S10U8, but I am really stuck.
I am doing a zoneadm clone -m copy, and I do not want a new ZFS dataset even though my zonepath is on a ZFS filesystem, for performance reasons particular to how I am using my zones. Unfortunately, zoneadm clone just ignores the "-m copy", and makes me a new ZFS filesystem anyway; and by the speed with which it finished, it certainly is a snapshot operation underneath. I have tested with making the source zone on a separate UFS, have pre-made a dirname under my ZFS filesystem as the zonepath, nothing works. I always get a new ZFS filesystem. I see that zoneadm install has an -x nodataset switch, I need this for zone clone as well. I have not seen this filed as a bug against S10, is there a work-around to get the behavior I want? This is sort of a big deal for our application. We use labeled zones, a file move within a filesystem has a different performance profile than a move from one filesystem to another filesystem, even within one ZFS pool. We are doing tens of thousands of move per minute. CT _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org
